Meme Of The Week: Diego Maradona’s Crazy Celebrations

If you know even a tiny bit of soccer then you’ve probably heard of Diego Maradona. Almost solely responsible for Argentina’s legacy in the sport, Maradona is one of the most famous and accomplished athletes of all time. It’s logical that he’d be in the FIFA World Cup, supporting his team, which he also coached for a couple of years (with disastrous results). While his achievements in soccer cannot be disputed, Maradona is a controversial figure, known for his gigantic ego, drug problems and overall weirdness.

Argentina has had a pretty interesting World Cup thus far, barely managing to qualify to the knockoffs. Even though the team has drama going on with their coach and their star, Leo Messi, no one is capable of eclipsing Maradona, who milks every ounce of attention in order to make the headlines.

In the midst of a very stressful game, Messi managed to score his first goal of the cup and to pave the way for his teams to the knockoffs. Maradona was stressed, almost leaping out of the stands with his arms stretched out, with one of his security guards holding him by the waist. It was very reminiscent of Titanic, just much less charming.

Twitter couldn’t cope. Memes were born. Check out some of the best memes that Maradona’s bizarre behavior lead to:
